Abstract

Pressure sore is a serious problem for patients with spinal cord injuries (SCI). Many kinds of pressure-relieving cushions have been developed to distribute the weight widely. In rehabilitation medicine, the selection of the wheelchair cushion and the adjustment of the cushion are very important problem for the medical staffs in prevention of pressure sore. So we propose the radar chart to support the medical staffs. We believe that this radar chart is very useful for medical staffs to select the wheelchair cushions, adjust the cushions and assist the SCI patient's posture. Moreover, it is useful for the SCI patients to study their posture on the wheelchair and the prevention of pressure sore.
